Don't let Glambo Lily's newcomer status fool you. The newly inaugurated luxury day spa boasts a staff of experienced massage therapists and aestheticians who hold 40 years of combined experience amongst them. Because of this, they're experts at all types of services from facials that employ cutting edge technology such as collagen induction therapy, to body wraps that help clients detoxify and lose inches from around their waists and legs. Massages, meanwhile, aim to baby tense muscles and stressed minds, and therapists often incorporate soothing extras such as aromatherapy and hot stones. Some massages even aim to deliver specific lifestyle benefits, such as the More Z's massage, which uses scents of valerian and lavender to promote better sleep, or the Sore No More massage, which can be particularly beneficial for those who sit at a desk all day and carry it home on their shoulders each night.
A The Detox Studio's intimate setting, the wellness expert aims to purge bodies of the debris associated with living in an industrialized society. Such debris?chemicals, inorganic compounds, and elevator music?hides in muscle tissue and skin pores, so the therapist uses organic and natural spa treatments to draw it out.
Many of the studio's services focus on massage. During these 40- to 90-minute treatments, the therapist armed with organic lotions kneads muscles until they feel like putty, a process that releases stored toxins and improves circulation. Other services use herbs to detoxify. The herbal detox wrap, for example, relies on herbs to drain lymphatic channels. Several services focus more on rejuvenation, including the Ayurvedic shirodhara treatment, during which the therapist slowly pours of stream of warm oil over the client's forehead as a soothing finish to a 30-minute head, shoulder, and neck massage.
Massage by Galen's licensed therapists tailor each massage to their client's needs. This might mean more focus on the back, neck, or legs if that's where the issues lie, or a blending of different massage styles in order to address multiple concerns at once. The staff here is well-versed in multiple styles of bodywork: Swedish for stress, hot stone for tension, and sports massage for injuries. Other treatments include Thai massage and reflexology, as well as portable chair massages, which the staff can bring to treat sore backs at any workplace, festival, shopping mall, or limbo tournament.
After 13 years of working in the health-care industry, licensed massage therapist Jean E. Besse realized that although she had a successful career, she had very little time to care for herself. Over the years, she had put on more than 30 pounds of excess weight thanks to a steady diet of fast food and soda. Then a fellow massage therapist pointed her to AdvoCare's line of energy drinks and bars. Besse lost 40 pounds.
She now shares her favorite products with others and drop-kicks every can of soda she sees. In addition to helping people lose weight, she helps ease their aches and pains through massage therapy at Relax Your Body -Shop.
Luxury Sweet Escape Spa was founded by a licensed aesthetician and a licensed massage therapist. Chris and Julie combined their powers to carve out a space where folks can spruce up with beauty treatments or wind down with spa services. The facials include a little of both; they begin with a skin analysis and continue with a deep cleansing, extractions, and choice of aroma?pick from peppermint, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, or citrus. The signature massages also include a choice of aroma, and incorporate techniques such as Lomi Lomi, deep-tissue, trigger-point, and Thai table massage to make you as loose and relaxed as a stick-figure in a spy movie. Specialty add-ons, including hot lava shells or a toffee body salt scrub, only augment the indulgence.
